WSET Level 3, TWP, Wine Manager @ Total Wine and More in Dallas. Passionate about learning, teaching, and all things funk.
This stuff is just tasty. Bringing the funk, dank, floral, lively, juicy and all around delicious fruits. All natural winemaking, by 2 couples that wanted to make wine that they wanted to drink. Another “anti-California” Californian wine. — 13 days ago
Wow - the nose is incredible on this, which is what I’ve come to expect from Ceritas pinots. Almost smells like watermelon jolly ranchers, aperol, Uber-high toned red fruit.. seductive. Pretty hefty tannins for Pinot, some raspberry and cinnamon on the palate. Pure red fruit again. Has the stuffing to age a long time - sit this one down. — 18 days ago
How could anyone not love this? Undisgorged bubbly from a house that sits half in Slovenia and half in Italy. 9 years on the lees, disgorged in a sink of water. Deliciously leesy, baked apple, almost cider-like.. bringer of the funk. What a great bottle, especially for the money involved. Get yaself some. — 25 days ago
Beautiful old school style of chard. Intense butterscotch and minerals on the nose, palate is extremely balanced, gorgeous purity of fruit, vibrant but not overpowering acidity, super soft finish, resonating peach and apple skin on the back end. Great bottle with amazing balance. — 18 days ago
Darker in the glass and on the nose than the hallenthal vineyard. More toasty baking spice, clove, Wild flowers (almost like walking through a field of wild flowers.) The palate is seductively smooth with chewy market cherries and more floral accents. As opposed to the last one, this needs no time at all - pop and pour and enjoy. — 18 days ago
